Red Nose Day Talent Contest Report

- 14/03/2015

On Friday 13th March a Cardiff Metropolitan University student on placement organised a talent contest to raise money for Red Nose Day!


Lindsey Dewitt worked with members of the Inclusive Youth Provision and 9 acts performed on the night.

The variety of talent made for a fantastic show. Acts included a comedy sketch as well as an improvisational comedy duo. Songs performed ranged from covers of Abba and Adelle to Marilyn Manson.

As well as performances with backing tracks one brave member opted to sing with no accompaniment and kept the audience mesmerised from start to finish!

It was a very difficult decision for the judges, but after long deliberation the winner of the contest was Jack Richardson who performed a freeform jazz piano solo which showcased his exceptional talent.


Many thanks to Lindsey for organising the show and well done to all those who performed.

£30.00 was raised for the Red Nose Day appeal!
